Joe Hill is no stranger to the horror genre. He’s the descendant of horror writing royalty. But not only is he just Stephen King’s son, he’s also an accomplished writer himself, with novels and graphic novels, some of which have become films (such as Horns), or television series (like Locke & Key, and N0S4A2). Basketful of Heads is another high concept series that Hill brings to life in an interesting and original way. As readers piece together the mysteries alongside June, we go along for an insane ride full of twists and turns, always surprising you, even when you think you have everything figured out.
Leomacs does a phenomenal job with the art in this series. The story is set in the 1980s, and the art has all the vibes of the best horror films from that decade. On top of that, the tones evoked from the colors by Dave Stewart are beautiful and really set the mood.
Overall, Basketful of Heads is a dive into 80s horror nostalgia, with plenty of gore, badass girl power, intrigue, and viking weaponry. If you missed out on the single issues, or your a trade waiter, then your time is finally coming to catch up on one of Joe Hill’s best comics. Pick up this delightful book September 8th, 2020.
